Left a mark on our carpet and stuffed up our vacuum. Terrible, carcinogenic product, we didn't realise the small print stated this until it was too late. Shouldn't be allowed to continue selling this stuff. Don't risk stuffing up your vacuum.
HORRENDOUS & DANGEROUS
This product is terrible and toxic. It almost destroyed my dyson vacuum and my lungs! Read the fine print carefully. I do not believe this product should be sold in Woolworths. Be very careful using it if you do and don't use a vacuum you want to keep.
Terrible and toxic product
This left white powder all over my carpet and did not remove the stain after two applications. It also completely ruined my vacuum cleaner with a fine white powered all through it. Everytime I turned on the vacuum cleaner it spat out a toxic cloud of white dust. This product states that it has cancer causing chemicals and that you should wear all possible protective gear when applying it. I would not recommend my worst enemy to use this product.
Cavalier dry is truly amazing
This stuff is truly amazing. I thought I would have to get the carpet cleaners but presto cavalier dry worked amazingly so impressed. Did not damage Vacuum. It did stop but once it cooled down it came back on. I also cleaned the filter.

Overpriced, toxic junk.
This product states clearly on the labelling that it is "for dry stains" and an "Advanced treatment for dry stubborn stains on carpets and rugs" including/in particular ( thanks for the handy illustrative graphic) dog vomit and urine. Tried it on dried urine stains on our white carpet and it made ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE at all. It did however give me a headache due to its highly toxic odour. This product is a rip-off. Try vinegar, blotted repeatedly with a towel followed by wool wash with glycerine and a steam clean. Avoid this product.

Not happy, I brought this for stains on the carpet but unless you have a vacuum that takes bags it blocks it up, worked well on some stains but i would of liked to of had the chance to reapply and vacuum again but my vacuum kept getting blocked, unless i buy a vacuum that takes bags i can't use the rest of the can. Would be nice if the can stated to only use vacuums that have bags.
I bought this product but didn't read all the fine print and just assumed that the warnings were in the normal range. Unfortunately, it states that you basically need full body protection to use it and that it contains chemicals that can cause cancer! I would prefer to live with the stained carpet. Wish I could get my money back.
Works every time
I have been using this product for a number of years to remove spot stains in our relatively new nylon carpet. I have never had a problem with it not doing the job. I use an older small battery powered vacuum cleaner (Black and Decker Dustbuster) with the small nozzle attachment and work around and through the stain as soon as the stain remover starts to turn white. Works every time.
May remove your stain but will cost you a vaccuum
I used this product on a coffee stain on a light carpet. The ultra fine powder completely clogged my Dyson V8 to the point it had to go back to Dyson for repair. The coffe stain was greatly diminished, but not willing to risk using again.
Thus I;d say it works well to remove the stains, but at a high cost to your equipment and environment. Should not be a consumer product.
Terrible product. No stars
This did nothing at all to remove a pet stain from my carpet all it did was remove the colour from the carpet surrounding the stain making the original stain more prominent. My bad luck for not patch testing but I've used other stain removers with no problem whatsoever.
Perfect, marks removed
Marks of unknown origin on my pale pink bedroom carpet are gone. The carpet looks fabulous again. I can't believe how easy it was. This product will be staying in my home cleaning cupboard forever. I think I'll do the wool rug myself using this dry cleaning spray instead of paying for another 'expert', the last experts left the rug sticky.
Best dry carpet stain remover ever!! ;)
Cavalier Bremworth dry stain remover for carpets is the best stain remover ever. Stains totally vanish! We have been using it for years. I have just posted about it.to my FB friends!! But Why can't we buy the wet stain remover in the Supermarket also? The shipping costs are a bit too expensive to buy the 3 pack online.
If you make a mistake and use this abominable product... do not use any vacuum cleaner ever again on that spot - it will clog forever (hint - I know!) Besides that it has almost zero effect (my opinion is that it paints over the spot with white dust!) I'm just saying!
In then end I used dishwashing liquid and a scrubbing brush. The carpet came up like brand new. They said water damages carpets ... well it was damaged already. Want to write off a vacuum cleaner... I know how! But then again you could ignore this message and learn yourself! I'm just saying! Oh, and do I really have to give it 1 star, I was hoping to select zero.
0/5 - Have you read the fine print on new cans?
So first things first, until recently I used this religiously and recommended it to others.
I used to use this product on my cream carpets in my old house. It was a miracle stain remover! The first stubborn stain I had was a large brown/orange stain which my not-so-lovable-at-the-time pooch created when he rolled in some red clay then came inside and did the same thing on the carpet, I thought the stain would be forever there and two treatments of this and the stain was gone! The next was after oiling my wooden floor boards my cat must have ...ran over it and proceeded to walk down the carpet stairs leaving tiny dark brown oil stains all the way down, I forget how many times I used this (was more than twice) but it eventually lifted the stain.... so until recently I would have thrown down 5/5 stars no problem. I now live in a house with natural wool carpets in slate, so dark, luckily I did a spot check because this product bleached the fibers badly. Unsure if it's a new formula (hoping it's a new formula) but there is a lot more fine powder produced now compared to the old can I once used. The spot I sprayed was small but the white dust sprayed out much further (resulting in a larger bleached area) and my vacuum cleaner struggled trying to vac all that fine dust up (fine powders are death to vacuums, that's why warranties won't cover you if you vacuum plaster dust and flour, kills the motor) and yeah, my vacuum over-heated on it and I suspect it was because of the excess fine dust it now produces. But you know what, even with a bleached patch on my carpet and a overheated vacuum, it's not why I'm giving this product 0/5 stars. No, the zero stars is because the most recent can (purchased Oct 2017) has an updated fine print, and it's scary as hell. Here is a picture of the back of can: https://i.imgur.com/zUqSXdF.jpg and may I draw your attention to the "suspected of causing cancer" part. Since I have the old empty can sitting here I can let you know the old fine print used to read: "Causes eye irritation and mild skin irritation, may cause damage to respiratory system if inhaled. Harmful if swallowed. Do not eat or drink when using, wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Use gloves if required. Avoid breathing vapor, do not use in confined space, ensure adequate ventilation." So that's been updated to what's in the picture (for those who don't want to open the picture the main warnings is suspected cancer, harmful to pets (well technically "terrestrial vertebrates" includes you and I) and may cause organ failure.) I found it funny that wearing gloves went from "if required" to basically you must shroud yourself in protective clothes. Having been a loyal user of this product I am floored that I may have been using such a harmful chemical for so long without knowing how serious the actual side effects were, I mean what do they consider "prolonged" or "repeated" exposure? Sometimes it takes more than one go of this to clean up a stain so to me that's repeated.... 0/5 there are safer products on the market.
It is truly amazing!
Bought this product after my cat vomited on the carpet. I was a bit skeptical at first, however, I sprayed the product on the small stain and then waited for it to dry. I few hours later I remembered to go and check... I vacuumed up the white powder patch and HOORAH! The vomit stain was completely gone. I couldn't even tell where it had happened. I definitely recommend this product.
